The earth s surface radiative budget in the solar wavelengths (i.e., shortwave) and thermal infrared wavelengths (i.e., longwave) is an important component of Earth s global energy balance and climate. As such, it was identified as a priority need by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and thus a program was instituted at NASA to estimate the radiative flux quantities at the surface from space observations. The Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project was created and later included as a... Topics: BINDERS (MATERIALS), MARS SURFACE, PLANETARY GEOLOGY, EXTRATERRESTRIAL RADIATION, FABRICATION,...
